Wrapping Up Last Night's Loss To The Avalanche

12/03/2018 at 8:18am EST

from Gregg Krupa of the Detroit News,

The Red Wings had a lot of fight in them but lost, 2-0, to the Avalanche Sunday at Little Caesars Arena, breaking their two-game winning streak and suffering their first shutout since March.

After a strong first period, in which the Wings were the assertive team, they got only 11 shots in the final two.

The game that featured Tyler Bertuzzi and Anthony Mantha winning big fights in the third period.

But playing without both of their third-best goal scorers for five minutes, while their second-leading goal scorer Dylan Larkin also had to sit out until he cleared concussion protocol, the Wings surrendered some of their key offensive weapons when it was a one-goal game.

“We certainly weren’t perfect,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “We had a lot of good chances to score and didn’t score.

“But, I thought our compete level and our physicality was really good.”

Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
